Getting suckered in to a home design sale is always easy, happy to at least go window shopping to see if there’s anything I don’t need but must buy. Had a quick drive up last weekend to the ABC Carpet and Home in Delray Beach, however, for a reason. We need new carpeting for the house, expanding family and all that. Like most design mavens across the internet I’ve had my eye on the overdyed carpets and bright non-traditional designs that ABC has had for the past few years. This year in particular we’ve ben seeing a lot of the AquaSilk in design mags and websites, so we thought this would be a good opportunity to do a little touch test.
Here’s our two cents. The AquaSilk carpet feel great, very silky as you might expect, but they are thin and delicate, so not appropriate for high traffic areas, especially if you want, and for the price should expect them to last. We’re sticking with the wool overdye, the colors may not be a rich, but the wool pile will survive years of use and will last a very long time while still feeling great under foot.
